The Language of Solitude is the STORY OF PAUL LEIBOVITZ WHO TRAVELS of Paul Leibovitz who travels a village outside Shanghai with his partner Christine when she receives a etter from her ong assumed dead brother There he uncovers a terrible incident involving the villagers health and the most powerful chemical company in China There may be some mild spoilers below I struggled with reading this work I found the characters dislikable and pigeonholed into characteristics and even worse stereotypes The main character Paul a foreign man who seems to be depicted as incredibly perfect from his flawless Mandarin and Cantonese to his ironclad sense of justice was unrealistic and upsetting in his hypocrisies All the Chinese people in the BOOK ARE PAINTED AS PASSIVE COWARDLY are painted as passive cowardly or just blossoming into confidence under Paul s tutelagePaul for whom a huge part of his ife seems to be his clingy ove for Christine becomes rapidly almost unbelievably so involved with Christine s rediscovered brother s family without discussing with Christine and despite her displeasure and her needing him He is presumptive and brash from making decisions concerning Christine s family without discussing with her to refusing to understand Chinese cultural differences these are generally portrayed in the novel from a distinctly foreign perspective despite some sections being written from a Chinese person s view Despite Christine as being described as a strong woman by Paul she is crippled by superstition and her character development falls very much to the wayside in spite of it being perfectly set up in earlier chapters her relationship with these rediscovered family members and how that changes is ignored in favor of Paul s changing relationship with her kin Yin Yin the niece is painted as a naive unassuming aspiring musician who only gains confidence and strength with Paul s help and whose youth and inexperience "is emphasized in everything from her emails containing ittle punctuation and rambling sentences in comparison "emphasized in everything from her emails containing ittle punctuation and rambling sentences in comparison Paul s grammatically correct and succinct ones The other secondary characters are similarly one dimensional and any growth the characters experience are sudden and jarring The world described in this novel seems akin to how a thriller would read where monsters urk around every corner in the terror that is the mainland China where people are secreted away and intimidation runs rampant And perhaps this is not without some merit but the exact situations also are not written in a particularly believable manner The story also seems to suffer from a ack of focus with no particular growth in either the overarching topic or in character development All in all a disappointing read and a depiction of Chinese people and China that I found not particularly nuanced and or deserving of the hugely complex culture that exists in China Elements were most definitely included in the novel representative of the author s stated interaction with China but the delicate relationships and balances between those aspects seemed presumptive and discordantly written For me it is difficult to read a tale where a foreign man come swooping in to try to affect change in Chinese people who are painted as backwardly superstitious overwhelmingly afraid and unfashionably unidimensional without him While I understand that this book is a work of fiction and that it is generally well written although rife with freuent philosophical tangents that don t seem to fit the tone of the tale with a foundation for an interesting plot this book made me furious and upset Thanks to the publisher for an advance digital copy in exchange for a fair review This novel details the adventures Die große China Saga geht weiter Paul ebt schon so Owls: Birds of the Night lange in China dass er glaubt das Land und die Frau mit der er sein Leben teilen möchte.
